To understand changing patterns of societal integration, we have to analyze the complex interplay of social structures, culture, and individuals attitudes and behaviors across time. This means to examine the changing dynamics of individual lives against a backdrop of political and social integration. Within Field C, this is done by looking at the interplay of individual attitudes, capabilities, and behavior and changing demographics, social structures, cultures, and institutions. This study of macro-micro interrelations requires dynamic individual-level analyses, embedded in multi-level models of social processes. Advanced sociological life-course and psychological lifespan research are powerful approaches to achieve this goal.
